From the very first encounter with lovely Lucy, staff at the North Melbourne Lost Cats’ Home had stars in their eyes, dazzled by the easy charm and prim elegance of this beautiful white cat.
A rendezvous with Lucy in her pen at the Home includes: dozens upon dozens of purrs, a minimum of 3x smooches for any who dare discontinue stroking, 2x gorgeous bright green eyes, expressing perfectly the pleasure of this dainty feline, and 1x fur covered set of clothing (Lucy loves to get close and personal!).
House trained, wormed, desexed and vaccinated, Lucy seems the perfect addition to any familial home, and she is certainly the type of versatile, easy-going and amenable cat who could fit seamlessly into the daily routine of just about anyone. She is even perfectly happy to buddy up with other four-legged friends, so for enchanting Lucy, a full house presents no obstacle.
The 18-month-old sweetheart was picked up as a stray in early November, waited eight days for her previous owners to search her out and take her home and then, when nobody came, was sent to the adoption pens.
Alas, at the Home Lucy has stayed, and staff are simply perplexed that she is yet to go to the loving and caring family she deserves, where she would thrive and quickly win hearts with her grace and manners.
“It’s just such as shame that people pass by the opportunity to adopt older cats like Lucy, to take on a kitten instead. They’re missing out on the established personalities and low-maintenance of older cats who know how to cuddle up, and how to do their own thing,” Karina Bailey, manager of The Lost Cats’ Home said, “and this is absolutely true of Lucy.”
All Lucy asks for is a loving home for the years to come, the providers of which will be rewarded tenfold with her stunning character and decorum, and the not-so-occasional smooch!
Lucy’s (anticipated) adoption ties in nicely with the half-price adoptions up for grabs at The Lost Dogs’ Home, as the staff members hope very much to ensure that as many dogs and cats as possible find comfortable homes and a return of their love before Christmas. This is especially now as 35 cats and 10 kittens already wait at the Home for adoption, before the holiday season is even in full swing. Any prospective adoptive pet owners would need only to complete the Pet Licence Test to be able to bring home the greatest Christmas present this month, for themselves and their new pet.
